This traditional Irish Chain quilt is more "dressy" than one often sees because of the elegant glazed chintz border. It measures a generous 82" x 96" as one would typically find in the mid 19th century when this was made. It is in unwashed condition. There is some light discoloration that would most likely be removed with a wash. The entire back is a glorious fabric shown in the last thumbnail. It would make an equally beautiful whole cloth quilt when used on the reverse.
